Rafael Benitez does not believe the Chelsea fans should be opposed to his appointment, despite his time as Liverpool manager[
"I like to do things in the right way for the fans.
"The fans and manager want to win every single game, nobody wants to win more than than fans and manager.
"At the end I think that they will be pleased."
Benitez, who revealed he had not yet met personally with owner Roman Abramovich, also claimed he was not concerned about only being offered a seven-month contract.
He said: "For me the most important thing is I am here because I want to be here. It's a massive club, a club which allows me to fight for trophies.
"I was looking for the right opportunity, I was looking for a top side who can fight for trophies.
"I don't care about the short-term deal."
Rafael Benitez does not believe the Chelsea fans should be opposed to his appointment, despite the run-ins he had with the club when Liverpool manager.
The Spaniard has been named as interim coach at Stamford Bridge until the end of the season following the departure of Roberto Di Matteo.
Benitez had a number of Champions League showdowns with Jose Mourinho's Chelsea when Liverpool manager and some of his comments at the time antagonised the Blues fans.
But he said at his unveiling today: "I want to be honest, if I say this or that, I have to analyse the context.
"We were playing against [Chelsea, what I have in my head is to win every game. We have five trophies to fight for. We will see what happens, in seven months we can win some trophies."
The former Inter Milan boss, who also strongly hinted John Terry would stay on as captain, said he was not put off by talk he is simply keeping the hot-seat warm for Pep Guardiola.
"I have a very good relationship with Guardiola," he added. "He is a great manager, what will happen in future I don't know.
"When you analyse why go to a top side for seven months - it's because you can win trophies."
How Benitez responded to some of the key questions at his press conference:
ON WHY HE TOOK THE JOB
"I am here because I want to be here. It is a massive club, a club that allows me to fight for trophies.
"This year in a lot of interviews I was asked 'why don't you get a job?'. I was trying to say to them I was looking for the right opportunity, a top side that can fight for trophies.
"When you have a challenge like this then you have to take it."
ON THE SHORT-TERM CONTRACT
"I don't care about short-term. What I have in my head is to win every game.
"We have five trophies to fight for so I will try from day one so in the end we will see what happens.
"In football and life you never know. If we win some trophies in seven months, I am sure everybody will be delighted."
ON WHAT ROMAN ABRAMOVICH SAID TO HIM
"I will meet maybe the owner today and I will talk about football.
"I was talking normally with (Chelsea sporting director) Michael Emenalo and today he was explaining to me what they expect, what they want.
"It's easy when you have experience at this level to know what they expect you to do: to win games, try to do it playing well and win trophies.
"I don't think he will change his speech at this moment."
ON INTERIM ROLE & PEP GUARDIOLA
"I have a very good relationships with Guardiola. I think he is a great manager.
"What will happen in the future you never know, but I know we have a massive game at the weekend and five trophies to fight for.
"When you analyse why you go to a top side like this for seven months, it's because you can win trophies.
"For nearly two years I was waiting for the right opportunity. Now I have this chance now. I have to do my best to try and take it."
ON ABRAMOVICH'S INFLUENCE
"When I spoke with Michael Emenalo, he didn't say 'you have to do this or that'. He just said, 'listen, we are hiring you because we trust you with anything you can do well, and you can do well with these players'.
"I didn't hear anything from him about having to do this or that against your principles in terms of winning games.
"I have a lot of experience at this level and normally I try to do what I do to win.
"People make mistakes, I make mistakes, but if I have to do something I will."
ON PAST CHELSEA QUOTES
"I don't remember some of the comments. But I will say, and I will be really honest, if I said this or that you have to analyse the context.
"We were playing against Chelsea, a top side, in the semi-finals of the Champions League.
"If I'm a fan, I would like to see my manager fighting for my team, my club and doing almost everything to win every game.
"So I don't see this as a lack of respect for the Chelsea fans.
"It's more a manager defending his team against another top side.
"I'm sure the fans here would like to see me doing the same now that I am here, defending their club."
ON BEING REUNITED WITH FERNANDO TORRES
"I spoke with him like with the other players today and his attitude was really good.
"It seems everybody was saying he wasn't doing well. I was saying the same when I was watching games but his attitude was really good.
"With this attitude, all the players will do well. We can win important things for the club with these players."
ON JOHN TERRY REMAINING CAPTAIN
"We will see in the next games because he's injured. But I'm really pleased with what I've seen with him.
"He's working with the young players, works very hard and has a commitment to the club.
"I think is an easy decision for me. Normally yes [he stays as captain]."
